Liverpool vs West Ham: preview 

If there's one team that knows how to win the Carabao Cup it's Liverpool. The Reds have lifted the trophy a record nine times and will have an eye on making that ten this season considering the other teams left in the competition. Jurgen Klopp's side beat Leicester at home in the third round, before setting up this quarter-final by beating Bournemouth 2-1 at the start of November. Can they take a step towards a 14th final appearance by winning here?

West Ham have never won the Carabao Cup, but having lifted last season's Europa Conference League trophy David Moyes' side now have a taste for silverware. The Hammers haven't had an easy run to the quarter-finals either. The third-round draw was kind in pitting them against League One side Lincoln City, but that merely set up a tie at home to Arsenal, a game that West Ham won convincingly. Goals from Kudus, Bowen and an own-goal by Ben White meant Odegaard's 95th-minute strike was the very definition of a consolation. Is another scalp on the cards at Anfield tonight? 

Here's how the teams line up:

Liverpool: Kelleher (GK); Gomez, Tsimikas, Quansah, Van Dijk; Endo, Szoboszlai, Jones; Gakpo, Elliott; Nunez.

West Ham: Areola (GK); Coufal, Mavropanos, Ogbonna, Johnson; Álvarez, Souček, Fornals; Kudus, Benrahma, Bowen.

How to watch Liverpool vs West Ham live stream from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Liverpool vs West Ham in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling, you probably won't be able to watch the Carabao Cup game like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also very easy to use.
